    I'm curious after a recent enquiry. Is the inspire ATEX Compliant?

    Any info would be great appreciated as this "ATEX" is new to me today.

    Also curious about EEX, Ex

    Having never heard of ATEX I had to look in up (UK Health & Safety Executive website) to find it covers explosive atmosphere and equipment within the EU. I very much doubt whether DJI is aware of it either and I also doubt that the Inspire 1 or any RPA/components are compliant.

    PS. Certified equipment is marked EX.

    I'm also looking into the status of UAV equipment if it is ATEX/ EEx approved , or at least to what extend.
    It would be nice to know upfront, before anyone asks or if it's required for a mission.
    I suppose it's required for most industrial applications, as one 'hangs around' with a 'sparkling thing'. As far as i know, multi rotor motors are spark free... but are they 'totally free' or are they negligible for most applications.

    it would be nice to ad EEX or Ex to the title of this thread, so the Euro's don't start a separate one.

    All input 's welcome,thnx.

    I've added this into the thread. Turns out the job I originally enquired about never went ahead due to airspace restrictions. (Military)

    Brushless motors are completely spark free however, the only ATEX certified UAV I know of is made by Xamen Tech.

    LE 4-8X Dual ATEX
